Outlook calendar integration to include MS Teams integration?

0

Are there any plans to add integration with Microsoft Teams to the Outlook calendar integration?  We do all of our candidate pre-screening on video through MS Teams video.

    Great idea.  We've had folks asking us to help automate this process and build integrations on other platforms (google hangouts, skype, join.me, zoom and bluejeans, to name a few) for many years now.

    The issue has been a lack of a simple API infrastructure for us to call these services and generate a meeting ID unique to this meeting.  We're unsure if Microsoft has this infrastructure available at this time.  If they do, and you have an API key for your account and a developer relations contact, we'd be happy to investigate for you.

    In the meantime what many of our customers do is re-use conference IDs for interviews.  They simply cut-and paste the information you have listed above into task templates and email confirmation templates in jobscore and re-use the conference IDs for phone interviews for specific users.  It works pretty great.  Contact your customer success representative about this immediate term solution and let us know if you have any insight into how to better work with microsoft on this emerging tech.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the reply - Dan.  Microsoft doesn't have Teams integration in their calendaring tool in their own ATS - Dynamics 365 for Talent, so perhaps it is an API infrastructure issue, as you suggested.  I'm trying to leverage one of our MS contacts to get the scoop on it.  I'll follow up with you offline re. working with MS.  I'll talk to our Recruiting team about the workaround that you mentioned - that may work.

    Thanks again,

    Dan
